Transcript of G4 Project: Nuclear Power

Nuclear Power Three Mile Island, How is energy generated from a nuclear power plant? Fission Uranium atom splits into two smaller atoms. a neutron hits the nucleus of a uranium Uranium -235 releases energy after the neutron collision collides with neutron, turns into Plutonum -239, then breaks and releases thermal energy Uranium -238 mass after separation: 99.9% of the original mass the other 0.1% converted to energy Einstein’s E=mc^2 (kg∙m^2 s^(-2)) Fusion combination of two hydrogen nuclei into one helium nucleus only under extremely hot temperature and high pressure too expensive "cold fusion" Three Mile Island Chernobyl, Fukushima Three Mile Island Nuclear Generating Station, Dauphin County, Pennsylvania March 28, 1979 no evidence of any abnormal numbers of cancer normal death rate and life expectancy no significant increase in cancer no radioactive iodine Chernobyl Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, Ukrainian SSR April 26, 1986 RBMK Reactor ‘High Power Channel-type Reactor’ radioactive cloud uranium dioxide fuel down syndrome chromosomal aberrations neural tube defects thyroid cancer cardiovascular diseases malformations, mutations, and cancer leukemia Fukushima Fukushima I Nuclear Power Plant Boiling Water Reactors Dahoon Baek, Steve Park, Minjee Kim, Hyonwoo Kang contaminated 20 miles around the reactor iodine-131, cesium-134, cesium-137 affects fish iodine affects humans' and animals' thyroid Japanese fish market radiation released, but not hazardous to health 9.0 magnitude Tohhoku earthquake and tsunami 5.7 m seawall couldn't prevent 14m tsunami tsunami broke the connection of the electrical grid http://motherjones.com/blue-marble/2011/04/radiation-seafood-japan
